Favorite Albums of 2007 part 2: Latecomer Edition

So remember how in the last post I mentioned that I like end of the year lists because they are good for recommendations? It's really a fun thing to do; I recommend it. I found out about The Hold Steady and Midlake a year ago the same way. Well, I have had some time to find, listen to, and process some of the albums that were on various people's end of the year lists, and I thought I'd list some of my favorites. I'm not going to re-do the list I made. At the time that was my list, and I won't change that. Think of this as an addendum, really. So here they are in no particular order.

Panda Bear - Person Pitch
Animal Collective - Strawberry Jam
LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver
Sambassadeur - Migration
Yeasayer - Yeasayer
Cloud Cult - The Meaning of 8
Shout Out Louds - Our Ill Wills
Stars - In Our Bedroom After the War
Let's Go Sailing - The Chaos In Order
Palomar - All Things, Forests
Deerhunter - Cryptograms
Jay Z - American Gangster
Iron and Wine - The Shepherd's Dog
M.I.A. - Kala
Justice - †

Maybe soon if I have some time after schoolwork dies down I will post with a "favorites of 2008 so far" type post.

I heart the Stars. Did you see them in the ATH last month? I wanted to but didn't make it.

It seems as though we pretty much have the SAME taste in music. Does Erin like the same things?!

We have to start attending concerts together.

No, I didn't see them in Athens. I didn't even know they played here.

Erin likes a lot of the same stuff I like, but I would say my musical tastes are a little more adventurous.

We are totally up for some concerts with you and Drew!
